For those of you who know my face but not name, I'm Nicole Dunkley, and I've just taken on the role of overseeing Communications at Coro. This involves overseeing the newssheet, e-News, our updated [website](http://corouniting.org) and app management, among other things.
Please contact me to say hi, or with any comms requests at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'm looking forward to the opportunity to enhance our communication as a church community and our engagement with the wider community!
A couple of years ago Mark Boyce ran a series of helpful [Mental Health Seminars](https://www.corouniting.org/resources/mental-health-seminars) at CoroUniting. These were recorded and notes made available for each session.
These are now available in the [Resources](https://www.corouniting.org/resources) section.
October’s Focus Mission is Dorcas, a group within our church who make up boxes for [Operation Christmas Child](https://www.samaritanspurse.org.au/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/).
If you would like to be part of this, see the linked flyer for more information. Filled boxes and loose items for boxes can be left in the large box in the foyer throughout this month and by Sunday 4 November at the latest.
Contact: Lee Newman on 7875 9384 or visit [operationchristmaschild.org.au](https://www.operationchristmaschild.org.au) for more ideas and resources including stories and videos.

We have recently launched our new website and app. There will be ongoing improvements and additions made over the next short while, however we are excited to get it out there and being used and looking forward to the opportunities that this new digital platform provides.
In order to make the most of the app and the new website (and, if you call CoroUniting your home church, to be able to access information that was previously password-protected, eg. newsletters, minutes etc) you will need to [download the app and create an account](https://corouniting.org.vinteract.com.au/d/TJ27u7R50gzZrRkklw94B590n), or [create an account via the website](https://corouniting.org.vinteract.com.au/d/3UrQ48QqD7mISVbHHc0TF26gP) (please note that creating an account on either platform will automatically give you an account for both, however the app requires downloading to have an app account).
The app and website will become an integral part of the way we communicate, with the ability to RSVP to events, lodge prayer requests, listen to Sunday messages, receive targeted notifications according to the specific ministries with which you choose to connect and so much more.

Thanks to the Admin Team for all their work enabling the new church carpets to be laid. Thank you to all who have contributed towards the cost and helped with moving chairs. I think we'd all agree that the finished result looks great!

TWCMAD (pronounced 'twookmad') 2018-19 is upon us! What on earth is that, we hear you say...
TWCMAD stands for 'Together We Can Make A Difference' and is the key way in which we seek to hear from each person who calls Coro home about the different ways in which they would like to serve as we head into 2019.
Check out '[TWCMAD 2018-19](https://www.corouniting.org/resources/twcmad-2018-19)' in the Resources section for forms for adults, youth and kids as well as some helpful devotional reflections.
